Between 400 and 500 migrant workers died while preparing for the World Cup soccer tournament in Qatar.

“I don’t have the exact number. That’s something that’s been discussed,” Hassan al-Thawadi, the secretary-general of the Supreme Committee, told Piers Morgan in an interview that aired Tuesday. “One death is a death too many. Plain and simple.”
